Flu, Pneumonia &
Shingles Immunizations, Plus Travel Vaccines and Many Others

At Halethorpe Pharmacy, we offer all the immunizations that Maryland law allows pharmacists to administer. Among these are the seasonal flu vaccine, the pneumonia vaccine, the shingles vaccine, travel vaccines, tetanus boosters, and many others. If your insurance does not cover the cost of vaccination, you will find that our out-of-pocket vaccination charges are very competitive. If your insurance only covers a vaccination in your doctor’s office, consider what your office visit co-pay would be versus the convenience of just stopping by the pharmacy for your shot.

There’s no need to have your vaccination out in the middle of a grocery store aisle! We offer a private consultation area to administer vaccinations. Stop in today to learn more.


Flu Shots (Seasonal Flu Vaccination)

Your Halethorpe Pharmacy pharmacist can vaccinate patients 9 years and older for the seasonal flu. Flu season varies from year to year. It can start as early as October and can run until early spring. It is now recommended that everyone 6 months and older be immunized against the seasonal flu. No prescription is required. Visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website for more details about flu and flu shots


NO APPOINTMENT OR PRESCRIPTION
       IS NEEDED FOR A FLU SHOT.

Pneumonia Vaccine

Your Halethorpe Pharmacy pharmacist can vaccinate all adults who qualify for the pneumonia vaccination. A one-time vaccination is currently recommended for all adults aged 65 and older. Also, pneumonia shots are recommended for persons 2 years and older who are at high risk for infection (for example, persons with sickle cell disease, HIV infection or other conditions that compromise the immune system). Pneumonia vaccination is also recommended for adults 19 through 64 years of age who smoke cigarettes or who have asthma. A PRESCRIPTION IS REQUIRED FOR THIS VACCINE. We can help you request the prescription from your doctor if you are in need of a pneumonia vaccination. We will also notify your doctor when you have received the vaccination.

We can help you request the prescription from your doctor if you are in need of a shingles vaccination. Some patients qualify for a manufacturer’s rebate if your insurance does not cover a shingles vaccination. We will also notify your doctor when you have received the vaccination.
